Thinkspace is honored to once again be exhibiting with the Honolulu Museum of Art School as part of this year’s POW! WOW! Hawai’i mural event.
For the fourth iteration of Thinkspace’s special exhibition ‘POW! WOW! Exploring the New Contemporary Art Movement‘ we have curated an exciting mix of established and up and coming artists from around the world.
This special exhibition will feature close to 100 local and international artists curated by Los Angeles-based gallery Thinkspace. In addition to the group show there will be a featured artist showcase from UK based artist Shok-1 and an installation from Oak Oak out of France. This massive group exhibition serves as a survey of the burgeoning New Contemporary Art Movement for art lovers on Oahu and the world over via social media, handpicked by one of the movement’s most prolific and respected galleries.
“With roots firmly planted in illustration, pop culture, comics, street art and graffiti, put quite simply the New Contemporary Art Movement is art for the people,” Thinkspace co-founder Andrew Hosner

Thinkspace has been working with POW!WOW! Hawaii for the last few years curating the exhibition at The Honolulu Museum of Art School that runs concurrently with the event. POW! WOW! Hawaii’s beautiful video recaps the energy and spirit of POW! WOW! interviewing a few of the artists and the various murals in time-lapse. Spotted in the video are Thinkspace Family artists, Ekundayo and Audrey Kawasaki.
Keep your eyes out for our upcoming collaborations with POW! WOW! at the Lancaster Museum of Art and History in August and the Long Beach Museum of Art next month.
Excited to be able to share the final photo of Curiot’s mural for POW! WOW! Hawaii 2016 that he created on the grounds of the Honolulu Museum of Art. The mural will stay up the entire year in the museum’s main courtyard.
We were proud to be able to co-sponsor the adventures and walls from Curiot and Audrey Kawasaki this year and are already planning out things for next year. Aloha to all our friends on Oahu, we can’t wait to come back!
This mural serves as a great lead-in to our big solo show with Curiot coming up on May 28th. More details shared soon!
